Slip and Fall & Premises Liability

Have you suffered a serious injury while on another person’s property? Did an unsafe condition on the premises lead to your injury? If so, you should consider speaking with a personal injury attorney who understands premises liability law. In California, property owners are responsible for maintaining safe premises at all times. They are also responsible for making sure the property is free of any hazardous conditions that could potentially lead to an accident. If a customer, guest, client, or visitor suffers an injury due to a dangerous condition on the premises, the owner of the property may be held liable for damages.

Joe Herbert Law offers caring legal services to victims of unsafe premises. I am here to take care of your premises liability claim and help you get compensated for your medical bills, lost wages and other damages if another is at fault.

Premises Liability Lawyers

Many circumstances can lead to a premises liability lawsuit. However, the most common cases are slip/trip and fall cases. When a person slips and falls, there is a good chance he or she may suffer from a number of serious injuries, including head trauma, brain injury, injuries to the back or spine, broken bones, concussion, internal injuries, permanent disability and even death. The pain of these injuries may not become prominent until a day or two after the accident, or when the person is no longer in shock from the incident. If any of the following conditions apply to your case, we encourage you to contact an experienced personal injury attorney immediately:

  • Uneven or unsafe floors or steps
  • Cracked sidewalks or parking lot pavement
  • Wet floors and puddles
  • Torn carpets or uneven flooring
  • Slippery surfaces
  • Falling objects
  • Construction areas with hazards that are easily accessible
  • Exposed ditches or holes
  • Failure to display warning signs of hazards
  • Obstructed walkways
  • Poor lighting

Other types of premises liability cases may include dog attacks, a pet- or wild-animal-caused injury, a swimming pool injury or drowning (wrongful death), or an assault and battery due to insufficient security. Regardless of how you or your loved one was seriously injured, I will fight to protect your rights and do what it takes to get the responsible party to compensate you for the medical bills, lost wages and other damages you have incurred due to the accident.

I am relentless and detail-oriented when it comes to fighting for the interests of my clients who have suffered injuries as the result of someone else’s negligence.

I have offices in Camarillo (Ventura County) and Northridge in the San Fernando Valley.


There are limited time periods (deadlines) for filing claims that apply to legal matters. If you do not file in a timely manner with the appropriate internal office, outside agency or civil court, you may lose the right to seek redress for the claim. You should seek the advice of counsel to ascertain all of the applicable time periods.


You should immediately consult with an experienced attorney to learn more about what you can do to protect your rights and when the deadlines (statutes of limitation) expire in your specific case.
